Owl Birthday Party

This is what I've been busy with.  

My daughter celebrated her 7th Birthday and wanted an Owl theme with her favorite colors ... teal and pink ... I just added the yellow as a moon since it was pretty close to Halloween.

For the invitation I used my Cricut and Gypsy to create a shaped card.  The owl is from Paisley cartridge.  I modified it a little like adding lashes using commas from one of the font cartridges I have.

The goody bags are just plain brown paper.  The owl's face base is a Nestabilities Label 1 die and I used various sizes of scallop and circle punchers to create the eyes.  I hand cut the nose and wings and assembled the owl.  I added wrinkled ribbon for the girls goody bag.

I made the pinata following a YouTube tutorial using a balloon as a base and covered it with scrap paper then crepe paper.  For the wings I used layered fringed brown paper and just curled it a little.

The subway art is from Eighteen25.  Incidentally the the colors were a perfect match!

For the shelf display I reused my Halloween plates to display the invitation and number 7.  I got some framed pictures in her room and some knick knacks that complement with the theme.

The cake sign was also made using my Cricut and Gypsy.  I hope you like my little ensemble.
